The countdown is on:
On 30 March Cosmic Revelation will change the array of the KASCADE experiment at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology into a giant light field of 40.000 sqm. As a light installation unique in its size for Germany Cosmic Revelation makes the energies of cosmic rays visible originating from the depths of space and interacting with our planet. One or two times per seconds the cosmic energies reveal its existence in bright flashy moments over the sixteen „cosmic mirrors“ – light sculptures especially created for the project.
The project is an exceptional art & science collaboration with the KASCADE experiment at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Cosmic Revelation will be presented on Monday 30 March 2009 in occasion of the KASCADE-Grande closure symposium on the campus of the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe.
The bilingual project page www.imachination.net/cosmicrevelation comes up with further background information, a.o. a video documentation on the remonte installation of Cosmic Revelation in November 2008. We kindly invite you to attend the event at 30. March at the KIT North Campus/ Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe. Visitors who registered on the project site get exclusive access free of charge to the campus!
